Winemaker Notes

One hundred percent Tempranillo from the Pesquera clones planted in 1998. Purity of fruit accompanies concentrated texture and weight, with excellent balance and expression enhanced by two years in bottle prior to release.

Deep ruby. Highly perfumed bouquet of cherry, mulberry, smoky Indian spices and vanilla. Vibrant, precise and seamless, offering juicy red and dark berry and floral flavors. Finishes with slow-building tannins, very good clarity and punch and repeating floral and spice qualities.

This is followed by a sweetly-fruited, well-proportioned wine with a friendly personality. It is approachable now but is likely to evolve for another 2-3 years. Drink this outstanding value from 2013 to 2020+.
